Ok... I like the way this turned out. What can I do to improve this?
How about the horizontal wires in the backround?
Ya... I thought about that... Guess I forgot... Consider them gone.
While you are at it, crop the bottom of the photo up to the mirror. Your wife and the color of the sky work well together in this shot!
Ok... So here is what I came up with. I first did the crop up to the mirror but didn't like it so I took it a bit further. Because of the crop I had to remove the antenna. I also removed those pesky wires.
EDIT: Sorry, I removed the images from Flickr and didn't think about them also leaving the forum.
Ok... I don't like it cropped. Decided IMO this is the best one.
Level the horizon and I think it's a winner
The only other thing I might retouch is - and I realize it's just clouds - but there's a vertical orange stripe coming out of her head set against some more pinkish clouds... should be pretty easy to blend out, but now that I've seen it I can't not see it. Otherwise... wow, nice shot!
Thanks for seeing that... After you brought it to my attention my eye would not move from the spot. Here is the edit.
If I were to make the hill in the background the line to level by then the actual horizon would be off. The Suzuki is sitting on level ground and the camera image is using it.
I looked at this while setting up the shot and had decided this was the best way. Thanks for your suggestion!
subject seems a little soft
It also needed some fill flash, next time expose for the sunset and use a bit of fill flash
